Though any variety of potatoes works equally well for this cheese mashed potatoes recipe, I pick red-pink potato over the rest in their family for its lower starch content and superiority on vitamin C, potassium and fiber content compares to russet potatoes. To select 'good' ones, I go for red-pink potatoes that are wrinkled-free, hard and no cut is observed on their skin.

Ingredients for Spinach + Cheese Mashed Potatoes (makes ~ 2 cup)
4 medium size red-pink potatoes - peeled and cut into bit sizes
100 g (~30 stalks) fresh spinach - washed and rinsed thoroughly
2 slices Cheddar cheese spread
1/4 cup milk/water (to thin if necessary - optional)
Dash of salt & pepper (optional)

Method:
1. Set up a multi-tier steamer. Place potatoes, steam for about 30 minutes.
After the timer run for 15 minutes, place spinach.
This way, both potato and spinach will be cooked at the same end time. 
2. Combine both potato and spinach. Add cheese.
3. Mash all of them with fork and stir to mix well. Pour some warm milk or water if the mashed potatoes are too dried. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper as you wish.
4. Ready to serve warm.
